Smoking is literally a question of life or death.

A recent Dutch study of 40k people showed that 20% of heavy smokers never make it to their 65th birthday. Even moderate smokers loose an average of 9 years from their life span.

The good news is that those who quit before their 50th birthday half their risk of premature death and those who quit before the age of 35 achieve the same life expectancy as a non-smoker.

Its time to make the choice.

✨ It's OK to stop.

Allow yourself to take a breath, a moment to look at ourselves from the outside and analyse our actions.

The more often we do this, the more conscious we become of your own actions, the more we are likely we are to identify habits and behaviour that are negative to our wellbeing and make steps to change.

It's easy to spot things that are bad for other people. Its much harder to spot them in ourselves. Make time to check in with yourself on a regular basis.

✨ Yes OK, but what now?

We all know that smoking is bad for us and that we should have stopped a long time ago, but what now?

It is still worth quitting today, even if you didn't do it before.

We didn't quit because we couldn't. We didn't feel like we had the strength. We didn't because we were addicted. but what now?

Just because you couldn't do something before, doesn't mean that you can't do it now. Give yourself a clean slate, don't stand in your own way.

There has never been a better time to quit.

✨ The first step is often the hardest.

Taking the first step, in so many circumstances, is the hardest part of achieving the things we want, especially when it comes to stopping smoking.

No matter how strong your internal thoughts or desires are, it is easy to let our fear of failure talk us out of taking the first steps to putting those dreams into practice.

Believe in yourself, take the first step - don't quit before you have started. Yes it may be difficult, you may face set backs, but you will never succeed if you never start.
